If it is the mechanical knob control style, then you can set the knob anywhere from 4 to 18 minutes of wash time even if there are no actual numbers; just move the dial further aling the washperiod space of the dial. If it is elelctronic, you are at the mercy of the controls. Some electronic units have a control that allows you to vary the time and others do not. Goodluck, Macgvior

Tip

Should I leave my washer door open to reduce odor?


Washer manufacturers and cleaning experts in almost futile efforts to reduce odor advise to leave the door open to increase airflow. This does lessen odor but makes the odor-causing residue more difficult to remove. Also, the mold and bacteria residue is still present upon the next wash. If your washer smells with the door open or closed...it's time to clean it.

Why does it take so long to wash cloths I have done everything 1 hour and half still washing


Hi Robin,

Many washers have different wash settings and rinses in addition to temperature options and water levels (or load size). The temperatures wont affect the wash times (but hot and warm water washes will cost you more for the expense of making the hot water), so choose whichever you think you need. The water level makes a small impact each time it needs to be filled (wash, rinse, etc.). A warm wash will fill in half the time as either a cold or hot wash - as both hot and cold water are combined to make a "warm" water cycle.

A "Normal" or "Regular" wash without a pre-soak or pre-wash cycle and a single rinse is usually sufficient for *most* laundry needs - especially if you're using dryer sheets. Otherwise, you may find fabric softener is not rinsed out enough to your liking (or not - it's a personal choice).

If your machine offers a "Max Extract" or longer spin setting - it is worth running it to reduce the amount of time they're in the expensive-to-use dryer.

If you need more help - provide your washer brand and model.

I have a Maytag "MTW5870TWO" washer that discharges the drain water at a rate faster than a 2" drain line can handle. I have removed and cleaned the drain line trap, snaked out the entire drain line...


I have the exact same problem. My husband has been looking for a reducer.
I read on the internet somewhere today, that maytag washers, have their drain hoses attached too low, and the drain hose needs to be raised above the washer. A cup hook, and a shoe string did the trick. It seemed to help on the medium wash load setting, but started overflowing at the end of the large load setting. My floor is ruined because of this.
What I have read about Maytag washers, I think I will just call it quits with this, and buy a Kenmore.
If someone comes up with a reducer, I would love to know about it.

How can I reduce the time needed for a wash ? It takes 2 hours is there any way to make it less ?


Most machines have a soil level selection (light / normal / heavy) and if you select light soil level the wash time is reduced. Also, some machines have a " Quick Cycle " which cuts a lot of time off, which should only be used with lightly soiled clothing. Additionally, make sure you have adequate water pressure, and that the inlet screens are clear so that the cycle is not delayed essesivly due to slow water fill. Regardless of all these, the higher spin speeds of a front loading machine (those have the longest wash times, due to the low water use and the tumbling wash action used vs an agitator in a top load machine) will result in reduced dryer run time, thus helping to reduce the overall time a load takes to wash and dry. (although still longer than most top loading sets) Generally, the energy savings and larger load sizes will outweigh the extra time the machines take.

I need to use 10 gallons to have the washing machine run. If I want to reduce to 7 gallons What shall I do.(the machine is heavy duty one) Best regards, olive


The only way to use less water in a washing machine is to turn your settings down to medium or small load, this is false economy as it takes more loads of laundry to get the job done,,To use your washer to its full economy, do full loads of laundry.
The washer requires a set amount of water to run,any less and you are not going to be happy with the results.
If you have the financial resources, you can install a water reclamation system,this will save and filter and then re-use the water again and again.

WT540 Washing machine has a smell coming from it


Based on the front load picture you included with you description...

This usually comes from a build up of soap and dirt that you cannot get to to clean. It is in the inner wall of the outer tub.

You should run a thorough cleaning with a product called Washing Machine Magic. It is designed to reduce this build up over time.

Another way to reduce it is use a very hot wash and put 1 cup of powder dish detergent in the tub before starting it. (yes I know this is a clothes washer). The dish detergent has ingredients to help reduce the odour.

These methods may have to be repeated several times to be 100% effective, but a large part of the odour should be reduced after the first cycle. If more are needed repeat once every couple of weeks until the odour is not noticeable.

The rubber door seal on this model should not accumulate smell but it may have depending upon the machine's age. This will have to be replaced if it has.

Prolonged washer cycle time


Hi! I'm not familiar with this model, but it sounds to me like there is not a problem! If you set the delay time to 0H, switch off the unit at the main switch, then switch back on. If there is still a 2H displayed, it means that the PROGRAM that you have selected will take 2hours! This is fairly common for the Bosch units on the 50 - 65degC cycles...some models have a "reduced washing time" button - it looks similar to the "delay" symbol, but once pressed, it reduces the washing time by almost half (cuts on rinse cycles) If your model does not have a reduced time button, select a shorter cycle (35/40/50eco), and see if the time is less. Remember that the latest dishwashers are engineered to be more energy efficient and water wise, so they had to lengthen the wash cycles in order to get good wash results! Hope this helps! C.
